Sumary of Pregnant women urged to get Covid jab as data from England shows it is safe:

  • Health leaders are urging thousands of unvaccinated pregnant women to get vaccinated after the first official data from England found Covid jabs are safe and effective.
  • The analysis of more than 350,000 deliveries by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) shows women who have had a Covid vaccine are no more likely than unvaccinated women to suffer stillbirth, premature birth or have babies with low birthweight.
  • Of all pregnant women in hospital with symptomatic Covid, 98% are unvaccinated.
  • Only 22% of women who gave birth in August were vaccinated, official figures show.
  • One in five of the most critically ill Covid patients in hospital since July have been pregnant women who have not been vaccinated.
  • “Every pregnant woman who has not yet been vaccinated should feel confident to go and get the jab, and that this will help to prevent the serious consequences of catching Covid-19 in pregnancy.
  • ”The data shows good birth outcomes in vaccinated women who had their babies up to August this year – with no consistent differences between vaccinated women and all women in the figures for stillbirths, low baby birthweights and premature births.
  • Dr June Raine, the chief executive of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, said: “We want to reassure all pregnant women that the Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective for them to use at all stages of pregnancy.
